Win 2000 Server & SQL 2000 Server vs. SBS 2000

Win 2000 Server & SQL 2000 Server vs. SBS 2000

Post by RCD » Fri, 17 Aug 2001 14:28:21



Hello,

I have very limited knowledge of SBS.  We are rolling out a new product line
to our customer base.  This will involve migrating from Novell to Win 2000
Server/SQL 2000 Server OR SBS 2000.  90% of our customers will not have more
than 20 users or more than 1 server.  We do not want to configure or support
any additional modules/servers (Exchange, IIS, etc.).  The only reason I
know of that we are considering SBS 2000 is price.

What are the pros/cons of each of these?

Any advice/recommendations would be appreciated.

TIA

If 90% of your customer base will have one server and less than 20 users they
too will probably be considering SBS 2000.

1. Problems running Terminal Server with Win 2000 server and SBS 2000

SBS can be the licensing server, no problem.

SBS does support TS, it's just a very very bad idea.
